Minolta Chromameter210 and Minolta
Chromameter310 colorimeter systmes, for absolute
analysis and colour certification.
This equipment records the values of parameters forming
colours of the product/object analysed (Colour
Luminosity and Saturation)
and processes such data into numerical values and thereby
provides the absolute Energy global value associated with
the colour (the comparison between such value with the
reference master colour provides QC with the shift
value to evaluate colour matching and therefore proceed to
product lot approval or discarding.
Such technique allows us to achieve an impartial, objective
and reproducible evaluation for the development of the
colour of any product/object for which we wish to learn the
colour (an indespensable tool for quality control of both l°
and ll° packaging components and for colour reproducibility
of products made).
